The Petersons [1] are a family of farmers who come back as zombies and mistakenly start destroying the land they once owned and lived on, due to a classic pattern of desecrated graves creating angry spirits.

HistoryEdit

The Petersons used to be a family of farmers who lived on the same farmland for 10 generations until all of them died. [2] They were all buried on the farm. [3] When the last member of the family died, the land went to the county. They removed the gravestones but not the bodies. [4] The land was later sold to Ray's cousin Samantha Stantz. Unaware of today's changes, they became zombies and rose from their graves every night to work on their former farm. The grave site was characterized by an odd form of Ectoplasm, pink in color, and remaining barren. [5] [6]

According to the Big Book of Occult Lore, the Petersons displayed a classic pattern of chronometric reversal aggravated by non-urban obsessive repetition. [7] They were farmers who got up at dawn to work but death reversed the pattern to night. [8] Unable to capture all of the Petersons with their equipment, the Ghostbusters rigged a Mass Containment Field in the dairy. They eventually left after Samantha Stantz explained that their actions were harming the farm, on the condition that Samantha planted daisies in the spring seasons. [9]

ClassificationEdit

Before conducting research, Ray guessed the entities had to be at least Class 2 Area Aberrations. Egon Spengler stated Class 3 at least. [10] [11]
